March Fishing Fort Lauderdale

March 11, 2014

March 5‑9, 2014


This past week the fishing has been great all over south Florida. I fished a tournament based in Key Largo, and fished anywhere from Key Largo all the way north to Miami. We caught a bunch of big mahi-mahi up to about 25 pounds, a few wahoo and four nice sailfish.

In Fort Lauderdale, the Lady Pamela II charterboats have been catching dusky sharks and a few hammerheads. There are plenty of blackfin tunas around, as well as king mackerel. Bottomfishing for vermilion snappers and gray tilefish has been exceptionally productive.


Some of my fishing buddies have been catching wahoo over 60 lbs north of here and these fish are reportedly moving south. A cold snap expected this weekend should drive these fish into our area and throw both the sailfish and wahoo bite into high gear.

What An Adventure!

I never leave reviews, but we had such a good time, I wanted to share with others. Captain David and his guys are top notch, you can tell as soon as you pull up that you have booked a great trip. We went out with them in April 2015 and we were told this was one of the best months for fishing off South Florida. The captain decided to fly kites (amazing!) to dangle baits so that the fish can’t see the hooks. I have never seen this, but it was amazing to see them do it. Within a few minutes we had a first sailfish on and then another hit. A double header! We landed both fish and the day went on just like that. We were watching the baits dangle on the surface all day.  Other boats in the area were “trolling” and weren’t catching any. David said it was because the water was so clear that it was important to kite fish.  I highly recommend booking them.
